    Stockdale - Careless for the first goal, comfortably beaten for the second 5
    Halford - Sloppy but his throw is a real weapon 5
    Bennett - Looked weak at times, not his best performance 5
    Greer - Has lost his way, poor passing 5
    Dunk - Solid enough, more comfortable on the ball than Greer 6
    Kayal - Nowhere as influential has he has been 5
    Ince - Ok, he lost he ball, but all the play went through him in the first half and he had nothing to work with. No one wanted the ball 5
    Lua Lua - Didn't see enough of the ball, which was a shame as he made a few darting runs 6
    JFC - Hate to say it, but he was rubbish 4
    Ledesma - Delivery not good enough and didn't make much of an impression 5
    O'Grady - Precious little service but was the only one who fancied it tonight 7

    Best and Bruno- Did nothing much but didn't have long 5

    Verdict: Second half way better than first but if you didn't go you missed nothing
    RIP the real Dale Jasper

      Pretty much agree. Surprised at team selection. Tonight was as if SH was back - no shape, no system, no idea what they were doing, no passion, apart from COG. No subs when we were chasing the game until 75 mins. Best looked to be half asleep and even less bothered. The main thing confirmed tonight was that JFC is still utter toilet! Reading were poor but we did our best to make them look pretty damn good. It's not the losing I I mind so much as the apathetic capitulation. What happened to the team that beat Derby such a short time ago?

      First half display was absolute horse shit !
      I was mystified by the complete lack of movement and imagination going forward.
      The only highlight was the ridiculing of Reading's rather portly 'full kit wa***er' !
      And Bolder never got a sniff !

      Good news: we scored an away goal, at last.

      Bad news: everything else.

      Scores: CoG tried, so I'll give him a 6. The rest didn't, so I won't bother either.

      Reading out-muscled us for the entire game. They hustled and harried us when we had possession at the back, and wanted the ball more than we did in the middle of the park. I was pretty depressed watching us at Cardiff; this was arguably a worse performance.

      Totally agree with what has been said although I thought Dunk had his worst game in ages,Mackie really got at him.

      On the way home we struggled to name a MOM (possibly COG) and certainly no one deserved more than a 6. On the management front I also thought Chris had his worst day at the office what with too many changes, an unbalanced side (especially down the right) and subs not effectively used. It seem last nights team selection was a case of keeping everyone in the squad happy and giving JFC his big night out.

      Worst performance I've seen since Millwall at home. Reading wanted it more on a dodgy pitch but a part from Mackie they weren't much better although they have mastered the skill of time wasting.

      Reading is an easy trip for a midweek game - even at 8.00 KO - why do they do that ? But as soon as I knew who was playing I feared the worst. Apart from the penalty I can't remember another decent shot in anger. The first half was simply terrible. The right hand side where Bruno / Calderon have been giving some creativity looked feeble. Ledesma won a penalty yes - but he looked lightweight and out of his depth. Maybe Texeira is a risk in away games - but Ledesma seemed like an experiment. If the objective was to defend a point, it didn't work did it. Looked a really ragbag squad on last night's evidence after some thrilling home performances - but next season needs a real influx of quality and reliability.
      I was rude, but I was rude to an idiot.

      Pretty much this.

      I'd add to the scores

      Hughton / Team selection : 5

      Why make 5 changes to a winning side? I thought those days were gone.

      Pitch : 4

      No excuses for the result but it was really bad - I hope we never have rugby at the Amex.....oh

      Atmosphere :

      3

      From both sets of fans. I guess sometimes you need something on the pitch to get excited about. 14k in a 30k stadium looks and sound awful - be warned!

      Overall, with the exception of Millwall at home the worst performance of the season.
      Thanks Robbie - one day we'll name a stand after you.

      Pretty much spot on except I'd mark Dunk down to 4 too. No-one worth more than a five. It really was a collectively dismal effort. It was only referee's inability to get to grips with Reading's constant fouling and gamesmanship that kept me watched this debacle.

      Not a good night for Hughton, he got this one wrong, too many changes to the team in my opinion. Still having read some of his post-match comments I think he realises this and we can at least play better on saturday.

      it was a good reminder to Bloom that we will need quite a few new players next season.
